D3D works on a single platform. I'm glad that it worked out for you, but it's not an option on many projects.

OS X itself (not the thing that runs on the iPad/iPods/iPhone) is POSIX compliant. Up until recently it had very good OpenGL support as well (they're a couple major revisions behind now, unfortunately).

That's a great environment for a computer engineer to work in, undeniably better than most console. Many developers will prefer that kind of environment to Windows..

The last time I used OpenGL it required so many vendor-specific extensions for any kind of modern features that I decided to switch to D3D. So no, I don't consider that a "great environment" to work in.

Political freedom can only be preceded by economic freedom which is preceded by monetary freedom.
